Baby Blue Dragons

For children 2.5 to 3.5 years of age.


The toddler classroom is painted whisper blue.


Blue is the color of water and the sea, it represents life, peace and tranquility. Lighter shades of blue help calm students, especially those that are starting school for the first time. Blue is thought to help build trust and confidence and reduce behavior issues in the classroom.
